have used the dutchman on 2 boats.
The cost of NOT having it is far more expensive!
from dutchman about set up and tuning is worth the cost.
There is a lot of good solid engineering in the product. Worth the price!
I used other brakes, but none have been as smooth and adjustable, being able to feather the friction, as the dutchman.
300 bucks is one of the least expensive things I have added to the boat!
